11:20 pm
graham describing it as unnerving i don't know what the phone call hafter was about but it had an unnerving effect on the ground i was in tunisia and the president had called dora general from the east of libya that is moving on tripoli and saying thank you for helping with isis and helped are good for depth phone calls seems to be perceived in the region as we're picking sides talks between the opposition groups in sudan and the military have wrapped up today with no firm agreement on how to move the crisis forward on saturday night the two sides announced the formation of a joint council but no further details have been agreed on just yet it's expected that once formed the joint council will lead the country until national elections are held. an attack on a protestant church in booking a fast so has left six people dead gunman shot five worshippers in the past as they were leaving a service in the small northern town of still gunshy recently there's been

11:22 pm
world bill gates initially made his fortune by founding and running the microsoft corporation. nearly twenty years ago he founded the bill and melinda gates foundation breaking now works all of the time. going down into more than fifty billion dollars he's the world's wealthiest private foundation that aims to enhance health care and education and to reduce poverty. and to keep in global health care controlled by just three trustees gates his wife melinda and billionaire warren buffett. the foundation's been credited with helping to save the lives of more than one hundred million children through increasing access to essential vaccines. but it's not without controversy. critics say has excessive influence on the health care policy in the developing world some argue
11:23 pm
it's lost resources but now ranks focus on health care providers band-aid to health crises that it calls to point deeper political problems in many of the world's poorest countries many of the people exposed to the diseases. it is the foundation aims to eradicate it in sub-saharan africa and that's where much of its work is focused. fricken union summit in ethiopia is character so that it's about gates came to meet we've had to state schools about health care. almost as many children will be born in africa specifically what was he trying to accomplish and that to those who say he's. wanted to so problems has some of those same heads of state willing to address themselves. to discuss this with bill gates as he talks. i mr bill gates thank you for talking to
11:24 pm
al-jazeera through here in the capital of ethiopia which is the seat of the african union. african leaders you hoping to talk to them. what are you hoping to get out of it. while i was invited to come to the summit and give a brief remarks my focus is on the opportunity. of the human capital here in africa that have the right things are done with the young people in terms of health and education that there's a very bright future for the continent there's a lot of great examples here. who've done an amazing job getting their primary health care system working and you know no reason why that can't be done in in all fifty four countries and in terms of specifics from the summit. to get anything concrete from from this meeting well. the health meeting. will be a number of pledges and discussions about. the big health global fund
11:25 pm
global alliance for vaccines which both. over the next eighteen months have made replenishments going on and seen that. some domestic resources from the african countries are going into these causes will help a lot with out and there need to be clear message about. you know these countries really valuing that work so that we can continue cutting debts cutting malaria deaths getting more innovative vaccines out to all the children of africa and the billion bill and melinda gates foundation focuses particularly on health care in some of the poorest countries in the world was the reason for this focus on health care when i was stunned to learn that hundreds of thousands of kids most of them in africa were dying of diarrhea over half of those lives could have been
11:26 pm
saved if there was a vaccine that was used in middle income in upper income countries called the rotavirus vaccine and so are pounding asian found other partners particularly the aid donors and created the global lines for vaccines and so now that rotavirus vaccine is getting out to almost all of those children that these new vaccines are the biggest reasons why africa has cut child mortality almost in half since gabi was created so. it's kind of amazing that you know for less than a thousand dollars you're saving a life you're improving the health of the survivors and as you prove how countries generally choose to reduce their population growth voluntarily so you're making all the challenges of the environment and jobs and stability that much more solvable to
11:27 pm
the future the foundation spends money on public education programs in the u.s. why is the public education in the u.s. and health in the world's poorest countries why not education in the world's poorest countries as well as well by far the biggest problem we have is the global health program. and that's over sixty percent of our money it's helping to invent new tools like malaria vaccine aids vaccine and then supporting these primary health care systems to get out to all the children in the u.s. we picked education as our big cars. and you know once we've had a major major success in the u.s. i'm sure they'll be lessons for the entire world but you know we saw the biggest deficit in the u.s. is. the lack to be equal opportunity which is what the country stands for the whole system although very expensive. you know it's. it's working you know
11:28 pm
quite well we didn't see anything. huge we could do there we do talk to the people who do international education we think that's very important but taking on the big diseases and these delivery systems you know that are priority that's where we have incredible depth of expertise and you know over the next several decades even something like malaria. we should get it close to eradication so they can really bring a. dramatic solution in health that enables education in prosperity so they think that if the world's poorest countries were healthy functioning democracies that it's the governments that should be providing public health care but the gates foundation of course is spending a lot of money from public health care you know doing the government's job for them
11:29 pm
well absolutely it's a job for government to do. and once countries reach a certain level of income say like vietnam or indonesia or india then they graduate from aid l. debility that is they're entirely using domestic resources and that's the goal of development aid is is to help countries graduate so the track record theirs is pretty fantastic now a lot of countries are. in terms of their being very poor of lack of governance that's not going to happen anytime soon and so as human beings. you know we should care about those doubts we should care about the malnutrition and we should help build that government capacity so we're not in to stay in any country for the long run that's that's the government's job but it takes something like creating a malaria vaccine. the poor countries who have malaria don't have the the
11:30 pm
skills or the resources to do it and the rich countries it's they haven't seen malaria for a long long time and so there are a few things. some people call global public goods we're having a foundation pick those scientists get behind them so the patients these are ten to twenty year projects many of them on you have to have multiple approaches and. a change based on you know what looks like it might be successful there's a rule that. our foundation saw that wasn't being filled but it's not the long term funding of the health system a lot of health care campaign is in many of these poorest countries skeptical of skeptical about the political will of the government to provide the health care that it should be providing to the population and you know often they argue is not a priority and corruption of course is a threat so too much is spent on big infrastructure projects and other things what
11:31 pm
can the gates foundation and what does the gates foundation do to try to hold these governments to account for the money that they should be spending on health care well we're purely in an advisory role we're not. in control of any decisions the world health organization is in working with these countries the one thing we can do is. we can highlight the example is an africa has lots of example. even governments for some of the other functioning isn't too strong like zimbabwe manages to keep its primary health care system functioning fairly well some that are fairly well off like nigeria actually particularly in the north don't manage to make the primary health care system work well so when leaders are interested in improving then there are lessons you know from ethiopia or wander many many countries that can be applied so we're here to help when there's the will to go in
11:32 pm
and make that effort and i want to talk about the size and scale of. the gates foundation which i understand is the largest philanthropic foundation in the world spending about forty five billion dollars every year i mean not as much as or more than the entire government budgets of many of the countries in this continent. so that comes with of course an enormous amount of influence you're a very big player in terms of global health care have it understand that the trust is controlled by just three people that you and your wife melinda are in warren buffett is not an enormous concentration of of power and in a sector that's of course meant to represent and help millions of people are meant to include a diversity of opinions and voices where the resources we're using for our work
11:33 pm
don't come from governments they got. solicit from other people this is taking the success that warren buffett had at berkshire and the success i had at microsoft in applying those resources in. the premarket system. you know people can take their wealth and you know spend it on. consumption or pass along to their kids you know what we've chosen to do is focus on the diseases of the poor and make sure that the best scientists in the world are working on hiv and malaria and malnutrition and prematurity things where the understanding is still not there and. it be great if that had been done before we came along. actually in help the the amount of controversy is less than you'd expect because the idea of saving children's lives is just not that controversial
11:34 pm
and so taking and we built the infrastructure that can measure. these deaths in the malnutrition through what's called the international health metrics and evaluation which is funded by us now we know the various causes of death that's called the global burden of disease it's a brilliant website lets you see over time by country by age by disease what's going on and it's clear you should take the things like malaria diarrhea and ammonia that are killing lots and lots of kids and figure out how to save out to save those lives and so you know there's always tactics about ok which drugs should we put the money into or someone thinks ok you know my disease is right for a breakthrough but we're all united by this idea that lives have because of value and what's being done you know falls way way short of taking the richness of the
11:35 pm
world in the great science of the world and helping the children particularly in africa. to live healthy lives. in a lot of these poorest countries democracy activists and political opposition would . argue that healthcare is just one symptom of a much more fundamental problem of governance a lack of democracy and talking about countries that have disputed elections or sometimes no elections it's who. they would say there's a myriad of problems in health care as a symptom of something much more fundamental i mean you have the foundation has you know a lot of wealth and a lot of influence just by going for health care is it like you're putting maybe just a band-aid on these much bigger more fundamental issues well certainly if someone knew how to write checks and create perfect democracies then that should be looked
11:36 pm
at as a potential in investment to supposed to you know giving a kid a missile facts and keeping them alive. and i'd still argue that measles vaccine no matter what form of government that child lives under those parents do care and in a malaria vaccine is a fairly cheap thing we've cut deaths and half and you know there is no great correspondence between the form of government and how well the health care is run in a nigeria collects the least in taxes. any country any size and so even though it is a democracy. the primary health care system in the north is not delivering and so. you know it doesn't just because you have a democracy doesn't necessarily mean that those things happen. now as countries get wealthier. which does mean being serious about the help they do tend
11:37 pm
to become more democratic do you think there's a sequential change in development begins with health care that can then bring the developmental benefits and if so how does that work well of the overall aid. which is about one hundred thirty billion a year. from which is mostly from the rich governments in our pound asian. is a is pretty small percent it is large relative to foundations because we're over five five billion a year but it's small compared to the government budgets of these these donor amounts about twenty percent goes to health and that's gone up quite a bit since two thousand partly the emergency partly the realisation of the profound success you can have it very very low cost the fact that we measure and we
11:38 pm
can tell you even at the subnational level what the did seize bird looks like and it's the health care system working well or not. and and sub somebody wants to fix it we actually get them lots of timely data pretty. small district area. so yes help no one would ever say that help alone. isn't enough but if all those lives had been saved for me to be if we weren't coming along cutting malaria deaths even the kids who survive are greatly damaged by the disease and the the malnutrition and so if you want to invest in their education which of course you should you want them to be healthy enough that cerebral malaria or malnutrition don't leave them stunted and we know that the learning outcomes for the kids which are a pretty high percentage over
11:39 pm
a third of those are very very limited so health fits in with you know infrastructure and government governance and education as the things that you know most cunt most people now live in middle income countries and. you know so we've learned a lot about development. and particularly the the critical world health place. i want to ask you about the role of intellectual property rights in in public health care in global health care because microsoft fought hard to try and. to lobby for laws that would favor corporations in protecting intellectual property rights and of course the argument for that corporations will be more inclined to invest more if if their. intellectual property is protected so they can earn more returns but many health care campaigners argue that the laws should go the opposite
11:40 pm
way with the laws as they exist. to the detriment of the people in the poorest country who need medicines they argue that the intellectual property laws favor the big pharma and disadvantage the poor people who depend on medicines to survive having moved from i think you know to global public health what's your view on this now well sort of mischaracterizing the microscope as any case the. ideal case is if a disease exists in the rich world. in the developing moral then you get all your profit recovery and your r. and d. risk from the middle income and rich countries with pricing and so one gabi goes in to get vaccines or one global fund goes in to get. drugs drugs there's no intellectual property increasing the price for the cost base
11:41 pm
and so our foundation is an expert in ok what is it costing on the margin to make these things and can we use folly and commit search. upfront spending to get. a process optimized and so the developing countries are getting these medicines at a cost base price in the mean time the fact that these companies have an incentive to invent new medicines that's the great greatest hope we have. particularly for the non-communicable diseases where today the costs of cured to so very very high you know so sickle cell disease you know we hope that gets solved in the rich countries and then. we can take can cost a deuce that solution and bring it to these countries so you won't see patent lawsuits in poor countries where some day soon something there was one
11:42 pm
brief thing like that. in south africa a sort of low middle income where on the aids drugs first the pharmaceuticals didn't have the teared pricing and that was a mistake they agreed it was a mistake and so we're very involved in making sure that that those medicines are made very very cheap in fact we just gave. four hundred million of volume guarantees to switch the first medicine to a new. and new set of drugs that are much less likely to have drug resistance and so we made sure that the. cost based manufacturing because of those fine guarantees they could stay at this less than one hundred dollars a year so we are you know we have a lot of smart people making sure that medicines are getting to these poor countries at absolutely the lowest cost possible and if you know somebody sees an
11:43 pm
idea to do that better you know we're the place that will take a look at that because we have no incentive other than improving these health outcomes and i read the bill and melinda gates foundation is due to wind up. but if you melinda have pasta. why not keep up the good work because many of the foundations will keep going. well the costs are biggest cause these diseases that are more prevalent in the poor countries we hope to have largely solved you know polio is close to getting done smallpox was quite some time ago. you know during my lifetime recently within. twenty years after. malaria v t v every one of these diseases can either be eradicated or brought to a very low level so there will be rich people in the future and they will understand better whether the problem is you know genetic modification robots you
11:44 pm
know what progress still needs to be made on climate change or other environmental issues so you know i can't from my grave be as hanna little as i am today and so these resources will go to global help the doing our best to get rid of these things so people you know it's like when you read in a book about consumption and somebody died of consumption you're like what is that well of course it's tuberculosis but in the rich world you don't see it much anymore these diseases should be a distant memory. by the time our foundation. wraps up its work and in the next ten years would you think we can achieve well it's pretty exciting we have a pipeline of new vaccines. you know of course there's the danger that the rich world is distracted you know between turning in more or. you know various
11:45 pm
polarization things the idea of keeping this a generous that's something that we need to remind people that even though it's far away even though everyone wants while they'll hear about some small percentage that want to stray the actual impact of these donations to lift these countries up is pretty fantastic so assuming we maintain this great commitment that the donor countries should be very proud of and has been used to build capacity and drive towards eventual graduation. you know i think by two thousand and thirty we can cut under five deaths in half again so went from twelve million a year before a foundational started now to six million a year and by twenty thirty we think with some innovation and better delivery we can get that below three million a year so that's you know down to two and a happier sent you know from ten percent to five percent to two and a happier sound. and so you know time is on our side the science

11:50 pm
win seats in the spanish parliament in movement for two years let's go live now to some of whose in the spanish capital madrid so why was this election such a watershed moment in spanish politics. for a start really it's been one of the highest heard outs that's been seen in election year history of spain's democracy perhaps down to the fact that if you were for example a socialist or maybe a centrist at the threats of having that far right folks in some kind of power in a possible coalition a right wing coalition really urged people to go out and vote for fear of that so really you had quite a bit of tactical voting going on on that side as well second point as well of course is the fact that it signals the end of the two party system in spain the. big guns as it. always the socialist party and the right wing peoples party was a two party system on an on a nationwide stage that has come now to an end with the addition of these three
11:51 pm
other parties which has happened in recent times let's also not forget the importance of the way that the wall rural and the provincial areas of spain have had in this election too because there have been many more players in this race every single vote has counted therefore the party's went after them all of the knowing that they would have to lend their weight to their support but of course now all eyes are on the business of how that next government is going to be formed . a new day for spanish politics but no certainty over what kind of government will come out of sunday's election spaniards may have turned out in force to vote in one of the most divisive elections but it was the socialists who came out on top but i mean i think it's a good result and honestly i didn't expected i thought the right wing was going to win here i'm going to i think the results are stable they almost have a stable majority and this can be good. all eyes are now on which direction the
11:52 pm
socialist leader pedro sanchez will take so far they have said they would attempt to form a minority government but it's still early days so what happens next well for a start there are further elections to contest local ones in this country and the european elections that are sanches might be playing his cards close to his chest he wants to try to win their gains there. you there is the option of going into a coalition a guaranteed majority could be made by partnering with the center right citizens party but it is an unpopular option for the socialists and their followers joining with a hard left put their most would avoid that scenario but then they would need to make deals with cattle an independent test another unpopular choice it's really awkward this problematic for them they have to do a lot of of the nation to the to their followers to their members the fact that they are that they are negotiating with the caseloads so they will try they will try to avoid violence the socialists may have some time but no one is expecting
11:53 pm
a quick results from this historic election but it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome difficulties spain has had problems with coalitions in the past and it's unclear whether the governing party can overcome the difficulties to create a stable and effective government and so an election campaign was dominated by the rise of the far right so where does this leave the vox party which did pretty well . for a while indeed and in fact you could say the. they were the disrupters of this whole race this campaign even though they only gained about twenty four out of three hundred fifty seats in the congress the lower house of the spanish parliament still it was their presence that spurred people on to vote either one way or the other but let's also not forget what they did for right wing voters as well the fact of least split vote you had people who fled from the people's party to go either to
11:54 pm
the more centrist right citizens party but also took away voters from the people's party to go who were unhappy with how the people's party had governed and dealt with the crisis so in effect splitting the right wing in this country it's the people's party itself suffered a humiliating defeat the worst in it's history it's going to have to do some very serious and deeper fraction if it's going to have any part in any future political map here in spain but really that is one of the reasons why this election has been so historic because one of the historic parties is in effect did its control over the political scene. in madrid sunny thank you. talks between sudan's ruling military and the opposition have resumed with more discussions on the transition to a civilian government the two sides announced the formation of a joint council on saturday night and i believe the country until elections are
11:55 pm
held by the details are still being negotiated and if you took after earlier this month after forcing former president omar bashir to step down where he joins us live from the capital khartoum she's outside the military headquarters where demonstrations are still continuing for the second of these joint council meetings finally got under way after some delays how they managed to iron out the main issues. while they're in the biggest issue that they were trying to iron out was how that transitional government should look like the military council wanted. be a military transitional government with civilian representation and the coalition wanted to be a civilian government with military representation to finish their meeting about an hour ago and they still have not reached a deal but what they did agree on is the declaration of the constitution which should they say will decide how to transition government should look like there's still a lot of issues to be discussed between the two sides but they're saying that this constitutional declaration which they will announce shortly will be they want to
11:56 pm
decide how the legislative assembly should look like how the the transitional council the supreme council of the transitional period would look like and more importantly it will be the one to decide the relationship between the military council and the transitional government so more talks are expected ahead but for now it seems that while they have not reached a deal on the main issues they want to they have reached some kind of deal to form a transitional government and he reports that the military council has frozen the bank accounts of the official trade unions well so what's the thinking behind this move. while the military council has always been saying that it is trying to get rid of elements from the former regime and everything that was started by the former regime most of the unions and federations were started by president bashir and his ruling party and his government so what they what the military council is saying now is that anything that has been established or founded by the former government and the former ruling party has to be suspended and all their accounts has to be audited so that's according to the explanation and the reason why they
11:57 pm
have suspended most of the unions and the federations people in there and in sudan usually if you most of the unions as filled with members from the former ruling party with loyalists and they feel like these unions will not be able to carry out their work independently so the military council is saying that the accounts of these federations and unions will be audited and will be reviewed and that they will then cite new guidelines to form new unions which will be independent from the transitional government and from the coming governments thank you. well turkey says a man held on suspicion of spying for the united arab emirates has killed himself istanbul's prosecutor says her son's body was found in still very prison he was charged alongside another suspect earlier this month they were accused of monitoring arab citizens on behalf of the u.a.e. so them cause syria has more now from istanbul. palestinian nationalism was arrested by the turkish police with one of his friends and the turkish police said that they have confessed to have been spying on be helpful the united states and
